2015 EPIK YOUNG LEADERS CONFERENCE 

ESSAY COMPETITION

 

 

 

The East Asia Institute(EAI) invites undergraduate and master’s degree students(including recent graduates) to share their visions on the critical challenges facing the global society at the "EPIK Young Leaders Conference2015: Essay Competition." The EPIK Young Leaders Conference has become an annual academic forum for young leaders since its successful start in 2010.

 

In light of the rapidly changing dynamics in today’s globalized societies, youth has become a major player in adjusting these transformations to meet different needs. This essay competition strives to offer a great opportunity for students not only to present their own understanding of the issue based on their comprehensive research, but also to expand their human networks with each other by participating in live discussions during the conference altogether. We encourage you to think analytically, creatively, and strategically by participating the "EPIK Young Leaders Conference 2015" in Seoul, Korea.  

 

The EAI hopes that the participants will be able to share their thoughts on various areas including, but not limited to, international politics, security, economics, business management, and science as well as to ponder their roles in this ever changing world. We expect that participants will develop their academic knowledge and writing quality throughout the process of expressing ideas and learn about different views.

 

 

 

Theme

Are conventional boundaries unraveling?

 

We live in a rapidly changing world where conventional boundaries seem to be disintegrating. Yet, there are also boundaries that are being maintained and even reinforced. These boundaries may exist anywhere, in any form and at all levels. For instance, they could be tangible or intangible boundaries found at the subnational, national, or global level. As well, there are boundaries in various spheres, such as politics, economy, society, and culture. Any change in these boundaries may result in the restructuring of pre-existing systems and traditions. Examples may include the creation or weakening of the European Union, new social or cultural identification of individuals, emergence or dissolution of transnational issues, and the advent of new interdisciplinary fields.

 

In your opinion, are conventional boundaries unraveling? First, define the conventional boundary of your choice and discuss its evolution and impacts. Be sure to support your argument using methods including, but not limited to, illustrative case studies or quantitative analyses. You are free to write your paper in any academic discipline.
